Just for sanity sake -- you're running on a box with a valid DISPLAY
that's running a GNOME desktop, yes?  (And more preferably, a RHEL3
gnome desktop)
Comment 4 Edward Rousseau 2004-08-24 15:04:27 EDT
Yes, this fails on the stable systems in RDU remotely and I had dkl
test them locally. It seg faults in either case. Other apps forward
and come up correctly for me here (mozilla, xterm, gedit).
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-08-24 15:17:52 EDT
Yeah, but applets are "special" since they depend on more than just a
display.  So if you're not running it all on the same machine (ie, the
whole desktop run from one box), I wouldn't be surprised if it failed.  

(Discounting doing wacky things like turning on ORBit over tcp/ip)
Comment 6 Jonathan Blandford 2004-08-24 15:59:22 EDT
Looks like the problem was with the test case.  older gnome-python
weren't robust against instantiation w/o a bonobo factory to go with
them.  It seems to work fine w/ a normal applet, but not the given
test case
